Sheringham to Cromer beach walk

Tuesday, June 05, 2018

On Friday we took a rare weekday day off and by off I mean a total shunning of all duties except watering the greenhouse first thing and walking Lincoln. After that it was left to us to kick up our heels and do exactly as we pleased to celebrate our wedding anniversary. First stop slightly off route was to eat a super tasty breakfast - in fact it was the best full English we've eaten in forever, Creake Abbey Cafe is where you need to head for a high quality, delicious plate of local goodness.
Having filled up and had a lovely coffee we drove back to Fakenham then on towards Cromer. Our most favourite walk is a circular from Cromer to Sheringham which I've blogged about on a few occasions before but we haven't been in years and it felt special to return to
The weather has been a right unpredictable mess lately and Friday was a foggy one, hence a lack of distance in any of the pictures! It certainly felt atmospheric. Here's the beach walk back to Cromer from Sheringham which is a lovely peaceful stretch although it must only be done at low tide as there isn't much clearance of water in some places and even then a few little leaps over streams is needed to avoid wet feet.


The fog kept the crowds at bay.





A warning sign about brown tailed moths hatching out of their webby sacks in the trees noted their caterpillary spines can fall out and cause severe itching and rashes. I was a little edgy.
I spotted one, then two, then they were everywhere so I made a swift exit!


The rest of the walk to come another day.
Do you have a most favourite walk in the world?
Take care,
Sophie

  1. One of my favourite walks which I've done twice is Rannadale Knotts near Crummock Water in the Lake District. It is special for a few reasons. Firstly, it is the last Lake District walk I ever did with Chris' Dad. Holidays to Haltwhistle always meant a trip to the Lakes with him and this was one he chose specially for me because he knew what type of downhill I liked and hated. It has a brief steep climb up (with no long walk to reach the fell) very nicely hewed steps with spectacular views of Crummock Water all the time. There is then a delightful ridge walk and then a gorgeously gentle, long downhill with no scree. You walk along a brook/stream and there are flowers. Apparently bluebells at the appropriate time of year.
    We did it twice and it made WOMOTM so happy that he could manage this walk, despite his deteriorating health and the weather was always perfect when we went. Plus, it is just beside Crummock Water and we paddled with our hot feet at the end and little fish nibbled our feet in a curious way. Also, the drive goes through a spectacular Pass to get there.
